Hot and Spicy Chilli Chicken Wings
How do you like your chicken wings? Sadly, a great many people will say straight from KFC or any one of a number of other fast food outlets. The reality is, however, that chicken wings are not only incredibly easy to cook at home, they can be prepared in your own kitchen in any number of different ways that you will never see them for sale in a takeaway. If you don't know this already, why not give them a go? They're inexpensive to buy from supermarkets and this is just one idea of how you can serve them up to your family. At the bottom of this post, you will find links to help you with a great many more delicious ways to serve up these succulent and tasty food items.
Ingredients per Person
4 large chicken wings
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp hot chilli powder
Pinch of sea salt
1/2 small white onion
2 tbsp Indian spiced onions
1 10" naan bread
Sprig of mint for garnish
Pour the vegetable oil in to a large glass or stone bowl. Add the chilli powder and a pinch of salt. Stir well to form a smooth paste before adding the chicken wings and sliced onion. Carefully stir in a folding motion to ensure the wings and onions are evenly coated. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a couple of hours. (Marinating for this length of time is not absolutely essential but does improve the ultimate flavour.)
Preheat your oven to 400F/200C. Lay the wings and onions on a baking tray and pour over any excess oil. Cook for thirty minutes.
When the wings come out of the oven, check the juices run clear by piercing with a skewer. Leave to rest for ten minutes before adding them to a serving dish.
If you are using a store bought naan, heat it per the instructions on the packet. Lay it on a chopping board and slice in to portions for service.
Spoon the spiced onions in to a small ramekin and garnish with the sprig of mint. Plate alongside the wings and arrange the naan bread slices alongside.
